Sweating: This is one of the body's mechanisms to reduce core temperature. Do not know how you have been measuring your temp, but it sounds as if you have had fevers and while sweating are breaking the fever. You cannot and should not interfere with this. If you continue the chances are that you should go and be medically evaluated. Good luck. ...Read more

Was given antibiotics for huge axillary abscess due to sweat gland infc, it got a head, popped has been draining &now has a hole in it is this normal?

Yes but . . .: Check back in w/your family doc to make sure the abscess has completely drained (and doesn't have any loculations or pockets). Also be sure to finish taking antibiotics as directed. Good luck! ps your (hopefully) empty pocket will eventually close, hopefully from bottom up so that it can't fill up again. ...Read more

Rash: like hard small sweat bumps without pus on forehead, not sweating? Used antibiotics, corn starch, salicylic, bak soda. Burn/tingle sensation?

Forehead bumps: There are about as many causes of the bumps you describe as there are patients that have them! it's impossible to tell you what these are, whether they are or oil gland-caused or they are growths of some kind but you need to see a dermatologist. ...Read more
